Intro to Publishing

with Carmela Furio


Dates: Monday-Thursday 6/19/23-6/22/23
Time: 1 - 3 pm (PT) // 4 - 6 pm (ET)
Ages: 12-16

Once your story is written, where does it go? Really, just what happens when you put your pen down or when you close your laptop? In our time together, we’ll take a deep dive into answering those questions! 

Campers will learn hands-on about the basics of publication, from publishing other people’s work to getting our own writing published. Class activities will introduce us to different forms of writing and how they get published. We’ll spend time exploring ways to get our stories published. We’ll even work together to learn how to start and run a literary magazine. This camp is designed to help older campers build knowledge and confidence in the lives of their writing. Group collaboration will be encouraged. No prior knowledge of publishing is required.


Stone Soup and Society of Young Inklings are both nonprofit organizations, and part of our collaborative mission is to celebrate the full, vibrant diversity of youth writers' voices and stories.
